Nigerian Soldiers have reportedly arrested popular Nollywood Actor, Chinwetalu Agu in Upper Iweka area of Onitsha, Anambra state for putting on an outfit with colours of the Biafran Flag.
On Thursday afternoon, Agu’s vehicle was stopped by soldiers who wasted no time to bring him out of his bus.
A crowd started building up before warning shots were released in the air. In footage seen by Emerald News Agu was dragged and manhandled by the Soldiers.
Last Month, Agu went viral on social media after wearing an outfit made of the Biafran Flag with many Nigerians stating on social media that ‘nothing must happen’ to the popular thespian.
The Biafran flag is the official emblem of South-East Separatist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, led by Nnamdi Kanu.
They have been pushing for the eastern part of Nigeria to become a separate country and their campaign has beed fraught with violent attacks and abductions in the region.The group has since been proscribed by the Nigerian Government.
